We loved this hotel. So clean and nicely decorated. The staff was very cordial and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast in the hotel restaurant, especially the mini waffles! Thanks for the coupons. Our first time at a Holiday Inn instead of Holiday Inn Express and we we really enjoyed it and will chose a Holiday Inn again.

To preface my review, my friend and I were traveling to St. Louis and were driving on a 9 1/2 hour drive. We drove until we both could not keep our eyes open. With that said, we needed somewhere to stay at an offramp from the interstate leading to our destination. This Holiday Inn happened to be it. We did...

We stayed here last year and decided to try it again. Check in was not smooth as we were given incorrect room keys twice but the rest of the stay made up for the inconvenience. We ate dinner and breakfast there and the food is reasonably priced and better than any chain nearby. My son enjoyed the indoor pool. The...

We stayed in one of their queen suites, which was spacious with a separate sitting area and sofa bed and two queen beds. It was clean, quiet, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was clean and efficient. We had breakfast at the hotel and the food was good and the prices very reasonable.

Stayed one night. Room was nice, had the TV channel list handy (personal pet peeve), wi-fi easy to connect and plenty fast. Water and coffee in the lobby. The workout room overlooks the pool so it doesn't feel so closed in.
